Police are renewing an appeal for public assistance after two children were assaulted and multiple homes broken into at Kingscliff last week.

About 11.30pm on Tuesday 2 June 2015, a man was disturbed after breaking into a unit on Lorien Way. He fled empty-handed.

A short time later, a man attempted to break into another home on Lorien Way. He was disturbed by the residents and fled.

In the third incident, about 12.30am (Wednesday 3 June 2015), police were called to a home on Pearl Street after a man broke in. The man assaulted a 15-year-old boy inside the home.

About 2am a 12-year-old girl was indecently assaulted by an intruder at another Pearl Street home.

Family members disturbed the man and he fled.

Police from Tweed/Byron Local Area Command have conducted extensive inquiries in an attempt to identify and locate the man involved.

Investigators have released a computer-generated image of a man they would like to speak with.

He’s described as being of Aboriginal/Torres Strait Islander appearance, aged in his late 20s or early 30s, about 180cm to 185cm tall and with short dark hair with bushy eyebrows.

As inquiries continue, members of the public are advised to stay vigilant with their home security, keeping doors and windows locked and secured.
